Bringing together recent gifts to Phoenix Art Museum and different media that relate to Noh Theater, Quiet Rage, Gentle Wail takes a multi-dimensional approach to appreciate Noh and its aesthetics: simplicity, nuance, and the distaste for realism.
Included in the exhibition are 22 Noh masks, a pair of two-panel screens and approximately 24 prints that depict Noh actors on stage.
The exhibition is part of the three-year project, Japan in Global Context, organized by ASU and funded by the Japan Foundation. Phoenix Art Museum is one of the proud participants in this grant project.
